A homophobic tsunami engulfed Poland in 2020. Vilified by the ruling political party, the LGBT+ community became the target of an intense campaign supported by the Catholic church and public media. The wave crested on August 7, when the community said enough is enough, demonstrating on the streets of Warsaw in defense of the activist Margot. On that day, the power of rainbow solidarity clashed with brutal police aggression, resulting in the orchestrated arrests of 48 participants of the protest. These included the protagonists of the film – Kajetan, Kamila, Krem as well as Julia and her partner. Their stories help viewers understand and feel the price paid by Poland's non-heteronormative community for societal homophobia and transphobia. It also describes the situation of the LGBT+ movement in Poland. August 7 may go down in history. Did it really awaken "queer rage" in Poland? Listen to the voices of the people in the film to find out.
